System: NERIDIS III, a new benthic profiler sled developed and owned by MARUM carries out electromagnetic (EM) soundings to determine relevant sediment properties. The system is also equipped with a new high-speed flash camera system to create continuous high-resolution optical sea-floor images. Turbidity and Salinity of benthic nepheloid layers can be recorded with the built-in CTD system. Profiling surveys are typically accompanied by material sampling and shipboard Multibeam bathymetry for obstacle avoidance.
